Hi @sulaha143 I personally do not use the machine but from what I have understood in my research is that it works similar to a bipap machine. You can find some information on how bipap machines work in the study that I mentioned in my previous post.
Here's a link to that study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7697242

Also due to the research from @duvie as you can see above, the Trilogy machine has various benefits:
- It's portable
- Has the ability to be calibrated more exact than a bipap machine
- Adjust to your breathing
The full post containing this information is at this link, also note the post below it for more information: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/the-use-of-a-triolgy-machine/?pg=1#comment-95147

As for you, what information have you found? Also, you mentioned you have flare up way to often, how often are they?

I was put on the Trilogy recently after using a CPAP for years. I was recently diagnosed with COPD with CO2 retention. I almost passed into the afterlife after having kidney failure and septic shock. After two hospital stays in 2 months I started using the Trilogy. I found it easy to adjust to vs. CPAP. Because it most resembles your normal breathing pattern. The machine eliminates the CO2 build up by venting thru the upper mask. I also use oxygen hooked to it at night. I this machine will keep me alive and out of the hospital. That is worth the cost alone. It is pricey but I was able to get multiple cost breaks. I highly recommend it and advocate for its use. Every pulmonary dr. Has praised its technology.
